Why The Apostleship of the Sea of the United Sates of America

In 1920, Catholic port ministry was conceived and developed in  Glasgow, Scotland. Two years later, Pope Pius XI bestowed his blessing  on the ministry and encouraged the Apostleship of the Sea to extend its  mission to the waterways and shores of all the hemispheres. In every  major country, the AOS Bishop Promoter oversees the work of a national  director whose responsibility is to coordinate the chaplains’ efforts  and assist them in developing their ministries.

In most major  ports around the world, the diocese assigns a chaplain (a priest,  deacon, religious, or lay ecclesial minister) to serve mariners aboard  ship and ashore.

Merchant vessels, cruise ships, crowded  wharves, hospitals, mariners’ academies, centers, clubs and retirement  homes all make up the port chaplain’s community. Trained and experienced  in the specific concerns of the maritime world, these chaplains,  deacons and lay ecclesial ministers represent the local diocese bishop  and serve as the mariners’ minister and friend.

The AOS was  established to provide for the specific pastoral needs of mariners and  all who travel by water. Chaplains provide the Catholic Mass,  Confession, Anointing of the Sick, and the Sacraments of the Church and  Pastoral Care. In addition, AOS ministries also work to ensure a safe  work environment, just contracts, a genuine welcome and safe haven while  in port, spiritual renewal, communication with loved ones back home,  and recreational possibilities.

The Apostleship of the Sea of the United States of America and Catholic Cruises and Tours work together to make sure that you can TAKE YOUR FAITH ON A JOURNEY


The  Apostleship of the Sea of the United States of America (AOS-USA) is  pleased to confirm that our two organizations have formed an alliance  wherein Catholic Cruises and Tours (CC&T) will source all of their  priest for cruises and tours through AOS-USA.

The  alliance between our two organizations ensures that, by our  organizations working together, Catholics sailing on cruises will have  priests ministering to them that are vetted by AOS-USA and certified as  priest in good standing by their respective Competent Authorities.

Help  support our Priest program onboard our cruise lines. Our responsibility  is to vet each Priest that boards any of our over 1000 cruises. So that  Catholics can feel comfortable knowing that they can take their FAITH  ON A JOURNEY. 

If your Priest is interested in joining and taking any of our Cruises or Tours.
